In April 2014 new legislation came into effect known as the commercial rent arrears recovery or CRAR for short. One aspect of this is the need to give tenants at least 7 days notice of the intention to effect recovery of arrears under those provisions and it has emerged that some tenants are using this as a form of short term overdraft.

The British Property Federation is making various recommendations in relation to these provisions to the Ministry of Justice – one of which is that if the landlord uses this process 3 times under a particular lease then if further arrears arise no notice will be required.
